Proposal would prevent Ohio lawmakers from setting their own pay

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WYTV) – Ohio lawmakers are looking at the possibility of having someone else set their salaries.

Senate President Keith Faber proposed a constitutional amendment that would create an appointed commission to set elected officials’ pay. Currently, lawmakers can give themselves a pay raise.

The commission would meet every two years to make salary adjustments.

State Representative John Boccieri (D-Poland) announced his support of the proposal on Thursday.

The Ohio Senate passed the proposal. It remains in a house committee.
